do you know anything about Hershbrungs colon birth abnormality?

2 Answers

  1. Hirschsprung Disease is a congenital disease (i.e. present at birth). The digestive system is largely made up of muscle, which function is to propel digested food from one end of the digestive tract (i.e. mouth) to the other end (i.e. anus). Muscles are filled with nerves. The nerves are responsible for contracting and relaxing the muscles. In Hirschsprung Disease, the muscles of the colon (i.e. the last segment of the long intestine) lack these nerves. As a result there is no movement at this point The result is the infant can not defecate and becomes impacted. The infant can’t feed because the digestive tract is impacted (i.e. stuffed). Imagine a highway where there is a traffic jam ahead. Nothing can get through until the jam is cleared. An alternative way to feed the infant is needed. And, ultimately, surgery is required to correct the obstruction. Please speak with your pediatrician and/or pediatric surgeon for more details. Please read the following “What you should know?” pamphlet on the disease:

  2. In Hirschsprungs disease, the aganglionic segment, that part of the bowel lacking nerves to propel food toward the rectum, may be long or short.

    Surgery to remove that segment is usually necessary. Some infants need a colostomy, an opening in the abdominal wall to let the stool out, for a variable time. In the hands of a good pediatric surgeon results are usually excellent.

    Diagnosis may involve a barium enema, a rectal biopsy, manometric (pressure) studies, or combination thereof.
